Our Community 

Joining the Santa Sabina Community means you and your child become part of the local and global Dominican family. It is about being known and valued as individuals whose gifts are recognised and interests are fostered. As a Dominican family, communication is critical; challenges are shared, achievements are celebrated, and we seek joy and gratitude in every day events. 

Our Program 

Prep Year children engage in rich, holistic learning experiences that address Early Stage One Learning Outcomes. As a candidate school for the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (PYP), our approach to early education is inquiry-based and child-centred. We are committed to supporting the cognitive, social, emotional, physical and spiritual development of each child. 

The children engage in early stage 1 learning experiences in reading, writing and mathematics. With a sound introduction to fundamental literacy and numeracy, our Prep students are prepared for school with a solid foundation and love of learning. Hands on exploration and experiences across several disciplines enable children to become independent learners with global awareness.
